I have a new blog ( that would feature my blogroll and awards.

Two other important sections in this blog would be "Cookbook reviews" and "Help on Blogging".

Help on blogging segment would feature notes for new bloggers who need assistance. The first step in this direction is "Creating a blog" .

Now for the second and most interesting section about Cookbook reviews. Inviting you all to be a part of this blog by sending me reviews of the cookbooks you have so that we can have one place that would feature all the cookbooks. It would help others to choose the books that would suit their needs and style of cooking. Please mail me the reviews and a picture of the cookbook front cover at I will soon come up with a logo that we can have in our blog sidebar which will link to the reviews of cookbooks. Hoping to get a good response from you all in this small effort of making a collection of good cookbooks.

My first cookbook review is LIFCO's How to Cook
